Climate in Yemen varies greatly depending on the geographical region. During the winter season, the country experiences coolness, with frequent frost. The range of temperature can go from 22°C (72°F) during the highest temperature in winter, into below 0°C (32.0 °F) at its coldest. Rain is brought in by the southwest winds. Rainfall, which comes in irregular heavy torrents, averages 130 millimetres (5.12 in) annually. Winter 2017 was very hash and difficult to most of the people in Yemen especially orphans, IDPs, Special Needs, poor and vulnerable families in war affected communities. Winter 2018 is expecting to be worse if not the same due to the severe drop down rate in temperature especially during the night. The extremely cold weather has increased the suffering of the poor who are already suffering because of the on-going war and more specifically our sponsored orphans as they lack the necessary winter clothing and blankets to keep them worm during this season. Between October 2017 and February 2018, the Shelter/NFI/CCCM cluster anticipates 537,430 households in need for winter assistance and estimated 161,239 most vulnerable households in need of urgent assistance. Beside that about 75% of the population (22.2 million people) requires humanitarian assistance. An estimated 17.8 million are food insecure -8.4 million people are severely food insecure and at risk of famine and over 3 million people have been forced to flee from their homes, according to the world bank in Yemen. The project represents one of the IR Yemen lifesaving interventions that aims to reduce the suffering of IR sponsored orphans in war affected communities in Taiz governorates and to avert the risk of humanitarian tragedy and loss of life during the winter months, particularly between October and February through distributing winter NFIs Kits assistance to 1,350 orphans’ families. The project will provide each family with winterization kit consisting of 2 blankets, 2 mattress and clothing package that is enough for two family members. Thus the expected number of beneficiaries is 2,700 individuals.
